Palestinian terrorists deny ISIS behind Jerusalem policewoman's murder

The attack appears to have been a coordinated effort by #Palestine Arabs at two different locations in the city for maximum effect.

Netanyahu repeated his call at the start of Sunday's cabinet meeting. A road leading to Damascus Gate full of stalls opened especially for Ramzan was closed off by police, and a shopkeeper said this would normally be one of the busiest nights of the year.

Israeli officials, in turn, denied that Hamas was responsible.

"A proposal was made, and the topic is still in the stages of study and discussion", the spokesperson said.

The three attackers were identified as as Bara Ibrahim Muhammad Saleh, 19, Adel Hassan Ahmad Anakush, 18, and Osama Ahmad Mustafa Atta, 19.

All three perpetrators were later shot down by Israeli soldiers.

In an online statement, IS said jihadist fighters had targeted a "gathering of Jews", warning that "this attack will not be the last". He stabbed her to death as she fought back and tried to shoot him. The terrorists arrived in Jerusalem on Thursday in order to surveil the scenes of the twin terror attacks.

The terror groups ISIS and Hamas both took credit for a pair of terror attacks in Jerusalem on Friday, then sparred over who truly was responsible.


The acronym PFLP stands for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a long-in-the-tooth terrorist organization formed after the 1967 war between Israel and Egypt, now a branch of the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank.

The Israeli forces also raised doubts about the veracity of the Daesh claim - its first for an attack in occupied Jerusalem or inside Israel - which came with the extremists facing defeat in their Iraq and Syria bastions.

Associated Press writer Mohammed Daraghmeh in Ramallah, West Bank, contributed to this report.

Palestinian militants launched an attackwith guns and knives near Jerusalem's Old City on Friday, killing a border policewoman and wounding three other people in the first attack within Israel or the West Bank claimed by the militant group Islamic State.

Permits for Friday prayers for women of all ages and men aged 40 and over are to remain in place. Palestinians want to establish an independent state in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, territories Israel captured in the 1967 Middle East War.

Since September 2015, Palestinian assailants have killed 42 Israelis, two visiting Americans and a British student, mainly in stabbing, shooting and vehicular attacks.

Furthermore, Israeli forces raided, searched and damaged the contents of dozens of houses belonging to relatives of the attackers and confiscated permits they had to Israel.

Israel had eased restrictions on the entry of Palestinians to Jerusalem and Israel from the West Bank for Ramadan.
